8:30 am
this is r.t. from moscow thanks for joining us if you just have we started with some breaking news actually now this hour the egyptian hard court just declared a third of parliamentary seats avoided also allows a mature feek the former premier of the ousted leadership to run for presidency ahead of the runoff this weekend and all that is the country's generals have brought in a law lonely army to arrest civilians a throwback to the country's pre revolution regime that's our top story also headlining this hour a suicide car bomb explosion in just ten in damascus with syrian officials saying terror tactics are being stepped up to pave the way for foreign military intervention. and the russian opposition journalist claims he was threatened with
8:31 am
death by the country's top investigator but the officials dismissed those accusations as the ravings of a madman. well we're focusing on egypt now continuing with it at the crossroads a big crossroads on its future r.t. talks to a renowned middle east academic the next about how the arab spring saga might pan out. tariq ramadan you're a professor at contemporary. oxford university and also you are a professor at the faculty of the stomach studies in qatar and it's great to have you with us today sir so i know the situation in north africa and the middle east
8:32 am
it's very complex and there are a lot of players involved in it. there's one trend that seems to be undisputed and it's rising and it's rise of islamist movement throughout the region could anyone have really predicted that kind of an outcome and even the pro-democracy protesters or the rebels did they know that this would happen i think that we if we want to talk about the whole situation and the results that we see in the first once again i'm not using the arab spring as a concept or even revolutions as doing that we are still seeing unfinished processes in the country now the people who were in the streets in tunisia in egypt there were young people young and not so young people and only object was to get treated the dictator and the regime so they want to treat them dignity and justice and less corruption they were not expecting anything and it was beyond any
8:33 am
ideological trend what happened as a second step is the presence of people who were in the opposition and had historical credibility no one can deny the fact that in tunisia in egypt the. president they had a popularity and they were tortured so the first reaction was coming back to make reference and supporting to keep. who had this historical credibility does it mean that it's going to stay the same does it mean that we are going through steps to be seen but what we have seen when and what we are now witnessing in egypt is still very complex is not yet done i'm not sure even at the time i'm talking to you that the muslim brotherhood are going to win the election i might i'm always almost sure that it's going to be the opposite and we all this process is the coming back of the old regime with
8:34 am
a very strong army in egypt but you know personally i know that you know if you use the term arab awakening and said arab spring could you have predicted this sort of an outcome yes anyone who is studying the region and look at what is happening knew. that in fact missed have a very important role in order countries it's true in morocco it's true in libya it's true in tunisia in egypt in syria even today and in other countries too if you have to deal with true transparent democracy processes you it's clear that they will have the rule now the rule being the leading force in the country this was not expected i would when i was asked about this before i was saying thirty percent representing thirty percent and in fact if you look at the parliamentary elections in tunisia they are thirty percent in egypt is exactly the same after the first
8:35 am
round of the presidential election it doesn't mean that in the future in the coming future things are not going to be seen that were not expected either which is a kind of controlled democracies and army playing a very important role behind the scenes all strategy can economy interest controlling the country as we are seeing now in libya and. seeing even in yemen because we don't speak very much about yemen and if you go to behind no one is talking about and it's present that as a fight between soon the why does more than this this is a shaken petrol monarchy no petrol in a key should be shaken for anyone because the the interest and the strategic interest. in the region so we better keep quiet with what is happening there talking about the strategic interests you know the question that everyone's asking
8:36 am
over here could arab appeal this take place without western sponsors so my position on this is mixed by saying if this is why i'm using the concept of i think that's something very specific happened over the last two years first to speak about you know people starting to be in the streets and changing everything. influence and nothing done beforehand i think this is simplistic and then naive i have studied what happened then we have interacted bloggers and cyber dissidents we were trained we've been in the west to push towards this so that. we're coming from western countries to change dictatorships or to change at least what was happening within the regimes so that's clear to see that everything was under control everything is coming from the west i think is going too far we also have to
8:37 am
take the political side of the story but the economy side of the story for the americans as well as for the european countries they needed a change in the regime in order to keep the markets while we have new actors in the market and many five actors that directly the monopoly of this relationship between the middle east and north african countries and the west china india. russia south africa and latin american countries. so it's complex and we need to get to less naive understanding i'm not saying that it's a big conspiracy i'm saying it's now the time we can see if the people in the streets are able to go towards true democracy processes by refusing to be under control and to have democracy under control this is one position and the second one for me which is very important is there is something which has changed over the
8:38 am
last two years is this intellectual review lucian in the arab or that yes it's possible we can remove a dictator i would like to speak a little bit in detail about egypt right now the constitution is still not drafted it's going to be drafted problem much later so the president is going to be elected and he's you know he's going to know about his powers only after he's elected and the constitution will also of course depend. on who is elected the president can't even talk about democracy with this given fact no we can't and i think that you know i'm very tough was dissent and studying what is happening if inductively you call was the last election i'm sure to tell you the truth that the last election was we will be transparent and they have a problem with the way it was done just even before who can be in and who is out of the way these candidates was chosen by whom and then you come to the committee that
8:39 am
has to work on the constitution and this was stopped so you elect someone as a president with executive power without having a clear framework religiously chief power and do we destroy the status structure that's very weird and i think that this is where we are now and we were told no just we are going to solve the problem with the presidential election that's not going to happen and look at what is happening. now so we have even people saying we have to stop the whole the process because even the fact that we have someone who is representing the all regime. how come. here they were saying that we need to put in the constitution that the people who are from the old regime cannot present themselves for the next ten years but you cannot come with this because it's not in the constitution and is going to be written after the election it's a mess there is no transparency and how can you speak about democracy procedures if
8:40 am
there is no transparency in the way it's put so in egypt i'm very worried about what is going to happen talking about chafee a former egyptian prime minister under mubarak he still has a lot of support i mean a lot of people were shocked that he actually got to the runoff does that mean that there's a lot of people in egypt who are actually favorable supporting the old regime so if you think that the elections were completely transparent you have some questions to because not only twenty percent but if you look at all the other. he also got almost twenty percent so it means that approximately forty five to fifty percent of do you are still supporting the old regime for all of this to come to this result is strange and then you see how the candidates were put you know omar suleiman being inside and then they. removed him and they kept someone who is ready
8:41 am
to my sense of all this is that we are not dealing with a transparent process we are dealing with calculation and calculation means that i thing that never from behind the scenes the army lost control of the situation so this is my sense and it might be that even the muslim brotherhood way used to be the visible legitimacy to something which is happening from behind the scenes so they were. the instruments of the coming back of the regime and the instruments of change do you think there is a chance that he could become president i mean shafiq yes i think that there is a great change that he can come and that people are going and that was happening if you read the newspapers in egypt now what he said is you know the muslim brotherhood going to be trust they want to have been playing with the army so there is a campaign here so i think that it might be that he will get the majority of the muslim
8:42 am
brotherhood will be in a situation that this report to process and they were involved in the process they would be unable to say it was not transparent because if the ride in the first round so makes sense here is shafique might be the next president i don't know what is going to happen with the people but if there are demonstrations my sense would be that the army is going to be very tough with the demonstrations if shafique being elected now if the muslim brotherhood are coming which i think it's less likely fifty fifty or a no i don't think it's fifty fifty i really think it's a game where the army has already decided that it is the right one to two to promote if that's the case if he's elected president do you think you will pardon barack i think that this business about mubarak is strange because the people are not reading the rules what is known is you know all the others have been acquitted
8:43 am
and then that nothing against them and he is the three and there is a rule in egypt beyond it for you can't be condemned so you are going to be left and now they are appealing against this. condemnation and he's eighty three it's very likely that it will take one year and he's going to be lost in the whole process so i think that this kind of condemnation is met. symbol to show that we are doing something against mubarak but to the implementation keeping safe all the interest because when we speak about the egypt will not only speaking about. and military power we are speaking about huge economy interest because the very very involved in many contracts many economy interest is huge and this is in fact the very essence of corruption in egypt thank you very much for this
